Aug. 30, 1920 - Jan. 24, 2013

Charlotte Marion Adams was born on August 30, 1920 in Renton, Washington, where she grew up. She passed away on January 24, 2013 from natural causes at the age of 92. Charlotte led a full life. Her father Stanley H. Green was in the oil business and for most of her adolescent life moved around until the family settled in Westwood, CA. Near the end of World War II, Charlotte worked as a clerk at the train depot in Oakland, CA where she met her true love and husband, John W. Adams (deceased July 27, 2003). After the war, Johnny finished college at UC Berkeley and took a position with a fertilizer and chemical company in Brawley, CA. If was from there that her life with John really began. They moved to Brawley in 1949. At that time Brawley was a young and growing town and she and Dad met many new life long friends there, most of them are gone now. Her first son Craig, was born in October of the first year in Brawley and her second son Scott was born at the newly opened hospital Pioneers Memorial in April 1951. While her sons were young she was mostly a homemaker but once they were in school Charlotte took up golf at Del Rio CC and even won several ladies flights during that time. Another passion she had was playing bridge and she would have the ladies over regularly to play. Mother also like to travel and when Johnny retired, they took several trips abroad. In her later years, Charlotte liked to paint clowns (by the numbers) and those masterpieces are still on her den walls. Another past time she enjoyed was working cross word puzzles.
She was preceded in death by her husband, John W. Adams on July 27, 2003.
Charlotte is survived by her sons, Scott Taylor Adams and Craig W. Adams; and nieces, Tracey Scott Green Grossman and Leslie Renee Green.
Charlotte will be dearly missed but she is with John and Barney (their cocker spaniel) now. God Bless Mother. The family suggests memorial to a church of your choice.
